Charles Rice Goff III Writes:
The basic idea behind RAYDIO BRADCASTS was for Justynn and I to create a series of audio vignettes based on recombining and rearranging bits and pieces from Ray Bradbury's huge output of inspiring literature. We sampled bits from radio, television, and movie adaptations of Bradbury's works. We read and caused computer voice emulators to read brief excerpts from Bradbury's stories. We cut and pasted bits from Bradbury's recorded interviews.
We combined these Bradbury samples with samples from other media sources and with original "music" to produce six recordings, each of which tells a unique story that provides listeners with a variety of interpretations. I should emphasize here that we make no claims on the copyrights of any of these sampled materials. What we have achieved here is purely an experiment in art and is in no way a capitalistic enterprise.
As for the technology I used in producing my portions of this project, the following items were all incorporated:
Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, K-Mart Portable Phonograph, Hello Kitty Electronic Guitar, Boss RC 20X Loop Station Loop Duplicator, Yamaha TG33 Tone Generator, personal computer, various online voice emulators, various computer recording softwares, various electronic sound effects.
Justynn Tyme Writes:
In composing these textured tracks, my approach to this project was akin to the praxes of a blind architect, as one would create a structure: feeling my way along the edges of things and piecing them together like puzzle pieces.
In composing the "music" for this project , I used a wide variety of equipment and instruments. In some tracks I used a combination of physical instruments such as: a recorder, maraca, autoharp, lap harp, door chime, xylophone, and guitar. In some tracks I used sound effects like thunder and wind. In other tracks I used electronic instruments like a keyboard and Merlin Tone Generator. I then squeezed all of these parts through various filters and functions.
I used audio programs: Cool96, Soundblaster, and Windows Media to record and manipulate the music and sounds used in these tracks.
In choosing the samples for these compositions, I culled pieces from various interpretations of Ray Bradbury's work and also chose many samples based on his likes and influences, to create a kaleidoscope of Bradbury references. Then on top of those, I picked samples that referenced parts of Charles' tracks as well as some of my personal favorites, to create many levels of enjoyment.
